Quick Takes

Few women head up films

March 03, 2009|Lee Margulies

Women made up 16% of all directors, producers, writers, cinematographers and editors working on the country's 250 highest-grossing movies last year, according to a report being released today by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University.

That represented an uptick of one percentage point from 2007 but a decline of three points compared with 2001, the report said.

The study, overseen by the center's executive director, Martha Lauzen, found that 22% of the films employed no women in any of those five job categories. There were no films that didn't have a man in at least one of those positions.
